Pixel Pixel renew our OctoberCMS partnership
This time last year we became Gold partners with our favourite CMS platform, OctoberCMS. One year on, and we are very happy to announce that we have renewed our relationship with the team and are looking forward to many more years of fruitful partnership.
The past year has been an invigorating time for us at Pixel Pixel, and our partnership with OctoberCMS has played a big part in that. When we first jumped aboard the October movement we knew that they had the potential to be something special, and we haven't been disappointed. October has continued to develop and mature as a viable enterprise-level platform, and our expertise with its features has tracked this growth, boosting our skills and allowing us to offer more compelling functionality to our customers. Happily, we have seen the community around the platform energise and grow exponentially in size and enthusiasm, and we are enjoying being part of that explosion.
But what if you've never heard of OctoberCMS? Here's what we had to say about it last year:
"OctoberCMS is a Laravel-based Content Management System which targets both agencies and individuals. It is deliciously simple to get to grips with and provides a real breadth of scope for developers, allowing the construction of anything from a small business web page right up to a complex web application. The transparency of the API and the lack of restricting markup structures make the system great for developers, while the clear and intuitive admin control panel allows non-technical users to manage their content with ease".
A year later and this is still our opinion. The platform is extensible and unopinionated and allows for a real sense of exploration and possibility. We have developed a whole raft of plugins (15 and counting while excluding custom builds) which feature boosted functionality in areas such as E-Commerce, SEO and ElasticSearch.
As you read this, we are currently putting the finishing touches to the latest of our proprietary plugins, one providing our clients with advanced case study displays and the other offering powerful and secure e-commerce functionality. We can't wait to let them loose in the wild.
If you get stuck, why not give us a call and see if we can help :)
